A fine quality Moroccan & Bullion generals sword belt complete.
The 1872 U.S. Army Uniform Regulations called for the general officers’ dress sword belt, to be “Of red Russia leather, with three strips of gold embroidery” (red Moroccan leather and gold bullion strips). Not only the use of gold bullion would signify a general’s belt, but also the additional gold bullion embroidery in the reverse sides of the two sword hangers. Applied, are the brass snap swivels. The 1872 pattern eagle belt plate is a quality made piece with nice definition and most gilt remaining, as well as the silver plating on the wreath , and banner.
No maker hallmarks.
Condition is fine with some areas showing light stress to the bullion, and a few areas where there was a verdigris buildup. Size would fit up to a 42 inch waist.
